just shoot the breeze, or raise off-topic issues, or maybe
post news of interest that doesn't merit starting a whole
new topic thread.
Also I know that there's plenty of folks who might well post
miscellaneous stuff on Faceberg - but who are now sick of
trawling through videos of cats ringing a bell to get food, or
dogs who howl while playing the piano, or swathes of dumb
truisms about how only truly spiritual people
can really appreciate the beauty of life.
Sample Facebook click bait:
So, if your refrigerator just exploded, or you've stumbled on
a great way of making sure you don't have to repaint your crib,
or found a website which portrays Hillary as a Mother Theresa,
or discovered a good side to vaccines, or simply think this damn
cold spell really sucks... or need to rant about your idiot
asshole of a cousin.... then this is the topic for all that.
Only rule is..... there aren't any rules.
Right, So I'm gonna kick this off with this little nugget.
For a few years I've been keeping track of stuff coming out of a website
called greenmedinfo which features some great health info resources.
Run by a guy called Sayer Ji. Seemed kosher enough. No red lights.
But yesterday Kathy McMahon says to me: "So, what's this,
Sayer Ji in bed with Infowars now, eh?" Heads Up Alert!
WTF!? Here's a video all about this new article on greenmedinfo, which
spotlights the so-called Monsanto Papers. And the more of it you watch,
the more you realize that these two sites are embedded in each other.
All of which makes me as "Dis-appoinnnnnn-ted"
as Kevin Kline was when Otto found himself staring
at an empty safe in A Fish Called Wanda:
Moving swiftly on before I throw up, here's a cute
website with no discernible link to Alex Jones (lol):
Which type are you?
Finally, what's better than having the gearbox on your old banger
of a Nissan Almera totally blow up on you while on the freeway?
Having it blow up as you fortunately make it to the next exit ramp is what.
And what's better than sitting in a Nissan Almera with a blown up gearbox
...late at night... and miles away from home and anyone you know?
What's better is sitting in the passenger seat of the car driven by a
friendly farmer who has just traveled 20 miles to go pick you up.
That's the upside of living in a rural area where you actually have
meaningful relationships of depth with ordinary people who take
time to talk and who make up the landscape of your day.
